There is an international micromouse contest in Portugal on July 16-17th – and I am going to be there!
I am really excited to be invited to the first international Portuguese micromouse contest. Also going will be Ng Beng Kiat from Singapore. It is an honour indeed to be for an event like this. I can only hope to perform well enough to justify their choice. Having never been to Portugal, this is another great opportunity to make new friends and increase my travel horizons.
The organising committee at Universidade de Trás-os Montes e Alto Douro (UTAD) recently sent out this press release for the contest. Visit their site and, if you can make it, sign up to take part.
